Coney Island Amusement Park Adventures

Coney Island Amusement Park

Sean and I visited Luna Park, a Coney Island Amusement Park, as media guests a couple of weekends ago. (Michael had a fever, so Reggie stayed home with him.) Sean is a little adventurer. He wanted to go on practically all of the rides. We started off at The Carousel, which was a nice calm ride. That was the last time that my stomach was settled for the day! The next ride, “Happy Swing” Continue Reading

6 Busch Gardens Williamsburg Rides for Families

Busch Gardens Williamsburg

While we were in Virginia for a family wedding, Reggie, the kids and I visited Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. I was able to snag 2 free media tickets and we paid for the other 2 tickets. I grew up regularly visiting Busch Gardens, so I definitely wanted Reggie and the kids to experience the amusement park. At first, I was shocked at how pricey the tickets had become ($62 for kids 3-9 and $72 Continue Reading

Avengers STATION Exhibition Review

A few weeks ago, my family visited Discovery Times Square Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. as media guests. This was one of those times that I received “cool points” for my job, because we were allowed to take pictures and video (which you’re not normally allowed to do). The interactive exhibit and showcase was full of artifacts that Marvel fans (like my family) know about as if there were real Continue Reading

The Colemans’ Marvel Universal Live review

My family went to see Marvel Universe Live! as media guests of the show last week. When I asked “my guys” their thoughts about the show, they started by throwing out media catchwords like “well put together, action-packed, thrilling and fun for the whole family”. After I reminded them that I would write the Colemans' Marvel Universe Live review like I would talk to a friend, their input became Continue Reading
